Could This Be the Best Radio Station in the U.S.?

By May 1, 2008

Follow me on:

According to Rolling Stone Magazine, yes. I'm talking about Indie 103.1/Los Angeles, an alternative rock station which launched in 2003. This year Rolling Stone named it "Best Radio Station". So, what makes this particular radio station so good?

A press release sums it up by touting its lineup including shows like: "...Jonesy’s Jukebox hosted by the Sex Pistols’ Steve Jones, Harmony in My Head with Henry Rollins, Camp Freddy Radio with Dave Navarro and Billy Morrison, Community Service hosted by The Crystal Method (Ken Jordan and Scott Kirkland) and Feel My Heat hosted by actor Danny Masterson and Brent Bolthouse. Each DJ creates their own playlists..."

Program Director, Max Tolkoff, says, "We’ve carved out a unique and rare niche for ourselves catering to radio listeners that lacked a true alternative rock station in the market."
